High blood pressure and diabetes due to a lack of education about, and access to, healthy foods. Broken bones and cuts from farming or ranching accidents. Childbirth.

In the Untied States, most of us see a doctor or go to the hospital in these situations. But in some communities of Mexico, getting medical care is daunting, if not impossible. Many of these communities are far from any medical facilities beyond the most basic of clinics and 50 miles from the nearest hospital; they’re rarely visited by doctors

The Tia Foundation helps by teaching locals the medical, health, and organizational skills they need to change their communities from within.

  1. I have a significant # of lancets which are new and I have donated to you in the past. Have you any interest?

    1. Absolutely! We are able to make great use of the ones you have donated previously. I’ll get in touch with you to see when I can swing by to pick them up.

    1. Hi Katie!
      Yes, we do need volunteers in Phoenix. We are having a volunteer event on Saturday, March 26th in the morning at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Details will be posted shortly. You will need to bring a laptop that can connect to the internet. You can also email me at tiafoundation@cox.net and we will keep you posted about other volunteer opportunities. Thank you so much for your interest in our cause!!!!!!

  2. We are traveling to Baja California the end of this month (Oct. 2014) and visiting a remote fishing village. In the past we have dropped off medical supplies such as bandages, neosporin and aspin. Do you have any supplies that might be of use to a tiny fishing village. The fishermen were delighted at our last donation.

    1. Hi Sue! Thank you for commenting! We operate out of Guadalajara and do not work in Baja. We’d be happy to recommend some supplies you might take along with you to donate, but we only distribute our supplies through the medical kits we give each of our health workers upon completion of their comprehensive training.

  3. Do you have to be an AZ resident to volunteer? And a current medical professional? I recently moved to CO and am doing pre-med studies, I would love the chance to help.
